Pre-Weekend Cache Clearance

February 17, 2012 College, Politics-2012 No Comments

A minor gaggle of updates and recommended reading for things slipping past my ability to find time to blog about them …

» Cougar baseball season begins today. I’m not expecting great things from them this season, but I am committing myself to the occasional Sunday afternoon game just to find some excuse to get back around campus and enjoy a little school spirit. First up, the Blue Hens of Delaware. I really want to see mascots there. Next week, Stace and I fight it out via our alma maters: that’d be Texas State for Dos Centavos.
I believe we may be joined by other bloggers, as well.

Good reading for dataheads.

Harvard on the Border

» Wash. Monthly: Higher Education’s New Caste System Over the years, I’ve grown to just ignore one of my favorite magazines as they put out their college ranking issue.

Cache Clearance: Post-Bill Filing Deadline Edition

March 12, 2013

A simple and straightforward clearing of the cache. Happy reading if you’re into that sort of thing. There are redistricting maps out for the session, but I think most folks are hoping there are no fireworks that accompany them. But just out of curiosity, I’ll probably find a little time to convert them to a […]

Aggreblogging in the Raw

February 18, 2013

Just pure, raw linkage this time. A few of these, I may come back to at some point during the week. But for now … read ‘em yourself. Committee hearings are picking up here in Austin, so there’s much fear and loathing to contend with. Reminds me: why is it that Hunter S. Thompson never […]

Two Notes on “Person of the Year”

December 19, 2012

» Time: 2012 Person of the Year: Barack Obama, the President Absolutely no shock in this year’s pick. But there are two particularly interesting passages written back-to-back in their write-up that I find particularly interesting. The first involves the transferability of the newfangled data-mining, data-crunching, hi-tech wizardy that people think won this election singlehandedly (emphasis […]

Lost Reading from an Obvious Post-Election Outcome

November 19, 2012

Election Day beyond HD137 was a bit anti-climactic for me. Anyone who doesn’t rely on rightwing media knew that Obama was going to be re-elected. Locally, I think Adrian Garcia was a somewhat assumed winner before the votes were revealed. So forgive me if it’s taken me a while to catch up on all of […]
